The University of Calgary’s Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Development (SEDV) is an interdisciplinary graduate program providing a balanced education related to energy and environmental management. A combined offering through the School of Public Policy, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, and Faculty of Law, SEDV is an unprecedented program designed for students seeking a broad-based and comprehensive energy education. Upon completion, graduates leave equipped to effectively manage sustainable energy projects and operations, while minimizing the impact on the environment and maximizing the socio-economic benefits to society.
Drawing on the university’s expertise in environmental engineering, natural resources law, business management, Indigenous relations, and environmental science, our curriculum combines disciplines to provide a holistic approach to energy and its complexities.
The diversity of our students’ academic and professional experience further enhances the interdisciplinary nature of the SEDV program by exposing them to the differing viewpoints others may contribute to discussions and projects.
The academic experience is enhanced by incorporating site visits, guest speakers, and mentorship opportunities to bridge the energy industry and our classroom, providing invaluable real world context and broadening the perspectives of our students.

My journey with SEDV has been an adventure. It has enabled me to rise above limits and explore sectors previously out of bounds. It has facilitated the startup of my own business, with the long-term goal of transforming donor-recipient relationships in Africa.
